    Default A Poll! Time Management and Scheduling T4L: How is T4L completed in your home?

    Just curious about the way various families make T4L work for them.

    Holy cow! It is difficult trying to keep the poll choices under 100 characters. Here are the choices as I originally typed them.

    1. I require my child to work on T4L for a certain number of days each week (ex. M-F, MWF, alternating MWF/TThS), and there are requirements regarding the amount of time he must spend, the subjects he must cover or the number of activities he must complete.

    2. I require my child to work on T4L for a certain number of days each week (ex. M-F, MWF, alternating MWF/TThS), but when my child is on T4L he can do as much or as little as he likes.

    3. Although we do not have a set schedule for T4L, I have a general idea of how much I want to complete in a given time (quarter, semester, year) and keep my eye on it, and when my child is on T4L there are requirements regarding the amount of time he must spend, the subjects he must cover or the number of activities he must complete.

    4. Although we do not have a set schedule for T4L, I have a general idea of how much I want to complete in a given time (quarter, semester, year) and keep my eye on it, but when my child is on T4L he can typically do as much or as little as he likes unless he begins to fall behind the general schedule in a subject.

    5. We do T4L when we can get to it, but when my child is on T4L there are requirements regarding the amount of time he must spend, the subjects he must cover or the number of activities he must complete.

    6. We do T4L when we can get to it, and when my child is on T4L he can do as much or as little as he likes.

    7. Obligatory Other (please explain)

    Because Doodlebug is in a tutorials all day on Tues and 9:30 to 12:30 on Fri, I would like my child to finish 36 days of T4L in each quarter 9wk quarter. This amounts to 4 days/ week and I had planned to do T4L MWThF, but I haven't been able to track it that closely. When he is on T4L, I usually ask that he complete at least 1 activity in each T4L subject (LA, LAx, Math, Science, SS)

    How are y'all managing T4L?
